I had beef stock already made, so used that to make the rice. Smells wonderful. There is more than I need just cooking for myself, so I'll make 2 batches of soup.

I'm simmering a chicken thigh in salted water with a chopped onion and about the same amount of chopped celery for the soup stock.

BTW, wild rice is gluten free so a good choice if you have friends who are gluten-intolerant.

Thanks for that. Several people here have mentioned needing to be gluten free. If you see anything like that, Pop up and say so.

Not having to deal with whether something had gluten, I wouldn't catch that.

BTW Z I cook the raw rice in the chicken stock for the soup than add the rest of the ingredients.

I had gathered that, but was thinking of regular rice swelling up. It worked out well, though, because I had enough to keep half of the rice mixture for another. It's awesome by itself.

I've got to go fill up my taster cup again. I think I'll just try the little bit of teriyaki in the cup. I'm glad I decided to try the sherry braised pork. I knew that meat would be special. This baggie was the pork from the bottom that had soaked and braised in the sherry.

I have yet to thicken it up. I'm kind of afraid of ruining it, so I'll eat some more and put the rest away for tomorrow. Can you imagine how it will taste then?

This one may not make the freezer. It's really good. It's funny, but I started this thread after locating the rice blend, only I thought it was a full bag of just wild rice. Since I got two batches of rice for 1 cup of mix, I'll get a total of 8 dinners I can get out of this package. I thought it was expensive at $3.47, but I'd already decided to buy the same thing online at twice the price.

It was your recipe that started this whole thing. I loved the way the recipe just took of in a whole 'nother direction. I'm beginning to think that I'll never be able to make it the way you did it.
